Carpineto Sinello is a village of some 800 people in the Chieti province of Abruzzi, not very far from the Adriatic Sea. Perhaps its main claim to fame is the Museo del Maiale (Pig Museum) which focuses on Abruzzi heritage, giving you a peek at traditional Italian customs and culture. You will have to make an appointment to visit this unique museum located in a former castle and palace. Try to visit on Tuesday, market day.
